Since the Caribbean offers some of the most attractive second citizenship benefits, you can now start looking into the top five nations for a second passport in the Caribbean, and why they are among the best places to become naturalized.
1- Antigua and Barbuda
Located three hours from Miami and 8 hours from London in the beautiful Caribbean Sea, this country that is home to over 100,000 residents offers tons of benefits to second-passport holders. This includes visa-free travel to over 150 jurisdictions, a front-row seat in its iconic 365 beaches, a foothold in one of the most desirable island destinations in the world, and a tax-free global personal income should you become a tax resident.
The quickest way to gain citizenship in this country is to invest in a business, a real estate project, or the National Development Fund (NDF) of Antigua and Barbuda.
Popular for its agriculture and tourism, this country is another great choice for a second citizenship and there are no restrictions on who can apply. This is because applying for citizenship in Dominica can be achieved by contributing $100,000 (one-time payment) or by making an investment for three years in a property approved by the Dominican government amounting to at least $200,000.
3- St. Lucia
This predominantly African and African-European nation boasts picturesque scenes of a tropical paradise and visa-free travel for passport holders to more than 118 states. It has a stable economic-political scene and doesn’t collect taxes on personal wealth, capital gains, or inheritance.
To top these off, their requirements for dual citizenship, aside from choosing an investment program, consist only of three other things: a good character, excellent health and a clean slate.
This Caribbean island popular for its moniker as the “Island of Spice” is another nation that offers visa-free travel to more than 80 countries around the world. Citizenship can be gained through the Grenada passport by investment program with minimal requirements including no criminal record, good character and health, and a high net worth. Grenada passport holders are eligible to apply for an E2 investor visa in the U.S. as well.
5- St. Kitts and Nevis
Home to beautiful natural scenery, St. Kitts and Nevis is a country where second citizenship applications can be processed in as fast as 60 days. Like the four other countries mentioned before it, this nation also boasts travel to 141 states without the need for a visa, including countries that are members of the European Union.
The St Kitts and Nevis citizenship by investment program was established in the 1980’s and is one of the better known options for high net worth individuals globally for a second citizenship in a low tax, tropical paradise.
